Taking time off is always a hard thing to do. As I am getting older (read wiser) I realize how important recovery is though, both physically and psychologically. Luckily I live in such a fantastic place, that there are many other fun things to do besides paddle.
These past 2 months were a whirlwind of travel, race, network and train. Totally awesome though! Back in Plett now, and finally a chance to settle into my flat that I had just moved into before I jetted off to Portugal. A chance to catch my breath and plan for the coming months. I am a firm believer in the “Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail” philosophy. I spend a good amount of time and energy setting up my year in terms of training and racing.
I can’t believe how fast the year has gone by, and that I am looking at 2011 already!
The weather has tuned foul, but maybe it’s good thing, as now I am forced to rest. I just hope I don’t become too attached to this rest phase:)
On the MultiCoach front, I have some exciting new developments in the pipeline. I will blog about them soon.
OK, I can smell the coffee brewing, better go make sure it tastes as good as the last cup…
